Our father Dan Harkov of Lodi, California passed away on October 12, 2013 at the age of 91 years old. He had lived in the Lodi area for 89 years.
He was preceded in death by his wife Geneva Harkov and an infant son Stephen Harkov.
Dad enjoyed fishing and gardening. He was very generous with distributing his catch and all of his vegitables to family and friends. He also canned salsa, peppers, olives, and homemade soups for giveaways.
We were all so blessed to celebrate his 90th and 91st birthdays with all his family together; what wonderful memories.
Dad's passion and purpose was his family

Dad was one of our World War II
Veterans. He was a Surgical Technician and traveled throughout Germany setting up medical camps.
He had such a beautiful smile and a funny sense of humor that will be surely missed by family and friends.
There comes a time when we all must say "Good-bye" but memories of those we love live on and never die.
"Good-bye Papa Dan - we love you so much and already miss you"
